Brownies have always been one of my favourite treats for two reasons:
- I’ve always had a bit of a sweet tooth
- Chocolate is delicious in any form. Duh.
But I hate having to compromise my health and potentially have stomach pains when I eat a brownie with white flour and refined sugar. Almost instantly after I indulge in the glory of the brownie, do I start to feel like shit and then it makes me regret eating it in the first place! So that’s where this recipe comes to the rescue! Grain, dairy and refined sugar free makes me able to eat maybe one too many than I should, but not have to compromise with an upset stomach. YAY!
These brownies are slightly under baked, leaving them extra fudgey and chewy. It’s important to let them fully cool before cutting the, as they will be too sticky and won’t cut easily. I actually scooped it up with a spoon when it was too hot to touch and ate it way before it was cooled down.. That’s true dedication!
